RADIO WON'T FIT!!!!!!

Post by smythie » Sun Jul 03, 2011 12:39 pm

Hi, just recently got my bcd996xt scanner and IT WON'T FIT in my VT commodore DIN!!!!!!!!!
i think the only way i'm gonna get it in there is take the case off it and do a makeshift cover somehow :o
Any ideas? i really want it in the din slot but it wont fit by about 3 BLOODY mm

I think you need to take the outer black case off and there is a bracket that it goes into.

Page 35 of the manual says it all and there's even a pic about it.
